Britain’s railway in numbers

Benefitting Britain

  • Up to one third of the 4% average annual increase in rail journeys since the mid 1990s has come from the changes to the industry model; combined with growth in freight, this was worth as much as £7.2billion to the UK economy in 2013, according to Oxera.
  • Total freight volumes have increased by over 80%, from 13.5billion net tonne km in 1995 to 24.2billion net tonne km in 2013-14.
